    We are going on our third day (72 hours) past the first egg hatch of our set and we still have 3 eggs showing no signs of pipping. I know that there was an embryo growing in at least one of them since it was wiggling a day before hatch day. Are these eggs dead? How long should I let them go? If I do open one, what should I look for that could tell me what went wrong?
